One to One Development Trust have created Wakefield’s first Virtual Reality Contemporary Art Gallery: SurroundVR
Six locally based artists with no previous VR experience working across different art forms have created their own work ‘live’ in VR.
The artists who took part were: Tracey Yates, Roo Veeren, Alicia Wallace, James Rattigan, Barry Snaith and Stephen Williamson. The results were woven into an imaginary new digital gallery “15,000 feet above Wakefield” and accessible only through Virtual Reality.
SurroundVR was launched on 26th September 2018 at Wakefield Art Walk.
More interactive events are planned for the next 12 months. Follow #SurroundVR on Twitter for more and visit www.artwalk.org.uk
